I am looking for 25 brothers that would be willing to take 25 at-risk young males to the 76'ers game from your community.I will provide the tickets, but the young men must be in middle school or high school and they cannot be related to you.The purpose of this is to step outside of our circle and invest in the young men in our community that are on the wrong path.The catch is you must continue to mentor them beyond the game. I would never ask someone to do something that I'm not willing to do, so I am going to select a kid as well. We have to start from somewhere. The game is Wednesday and it's on a first come basis.Men our young brothers need us.Each man must select one kid.

    10 Essential Bakeries for Bread in Philadelphia
    Alongside legendary Philly stalwarts like Sarcone's and Kaplan's, new bread bakeries are popping up like so many brioche buns left to proof. If the humble loaf is in retreat nationally from the double-whammy of carb-phobia and gluten intolerance, Philadelphia shows little sign of retreat.
